Random kitty picture! haha
For the last few years - I have LOVED LOVED LOVED my iGoogle homepage!! I had all my favorite art blogs, home décor blogs, craft blogs, lifestyle blogs, tiled on there - the weather in San Diego and here in Wisconsin - the news (what little negative news I let into my world) - and anything else I wanted to keep up to date on...in a quick glance page...that would update all the time, so I didn't have to go hunting each blog and eat up a lot of "work" time!
Well -- As of November 2013 - iGoogle will no longer be available! :( I've been dreading that month coming - what would I do - how could I easily get all my inspirational "input" for the day without wasting a lot of time. I looked and looked and looked -- and waited -- thinking Google would change their minds or would come out with a replacement.... but NO.
But...surprise surprise...I stumbled across an AWESOME replacement! If you need a way to easily keep track of all the lastest news and posts on your favorite blogs -- this is IT!! Bloglovin'!!! All you have to do is sign up - then start typing your favorite blogs in the Search bar! When you find the blog you want - just click Follow! So quick and easy!! I just love it!
Every day you'll get ONE - yep only ONE - email with snippets of all the latest posts by your followed blogs! If you want to read the whole article - just click on the title and BOOM - you're there! I SOooo love this!! And I can't believe it's even EASIER than the IGoogle page! I don't even have to get on the internet to see the updates! YEAH!!
Try it out! Let me know how you like it!
A few UPDATES of my own: As you can see - I gave up on the 30 days of blogging - it just doesn't fit in my life & work style - for reasons mentioned in previous posts - haha. So instead of trying to be inauthentic and just yacking for the sake of HAVING to do a daily post - I'm going back to blogging when I have something to say or something fun to post! :) It wasn't a waste though - I DID learn a lot about blogging and posting! And I think about my daily life in a different way - I'm now documenting and taking pics of things I think may be interesting for a post! :)
Also - on the purging 100 things in 100 days front -- I'm well over the 100 things!! I think I'm addicted to getting rid of stuff now! haha I've always been an unclutter-type person - but I think I've kind of gone to the extreme... even so far as unsubscribing from a lot of my daily emails so I can "unclutter" my inbox! I'm in a "cleaning out" mode -- and I'm planning on keeping that a small part of every day! Yay!
